    My S's interviewer led him to believe the decisions would be mailed out this week, but there is no way they are going to mail them out until they have reviewed them all. Most decisions have probably already been made. They are still getting interviews in and collecting stuff that's missing on some apps. I would expect them to be mailed out next week, though.

    Decisions are mailed out via Priority Mail.
    New Jerseyites around Princeton get the decisions within a day, NYC gets it within 2 days, and everyone else typically has to wait three days for ACCEPTANCES to arrive. The envelope is LARGE.

    REJECTIONS/DEFERRALS are mailed out reg mail... so you're probably deffered or rejected if someone in the neighborhood gets an acceptance and you get nothing.

    Go back to last year's posts if you want to see how the mail gets around the country when sent from Princeton.

    I got my decision before the 15th last year... because 15th was the stanford app date and I never sent it.

    mzhang,

    Thanks for the details. It's just too bad P doesn't also send someone to hold our hands while we wait for the mail to arrive...
